With a gruff flick of a switch the clarion alarm stopped, but the red light kept on flashing as the Johnny's dad announced to one and all aboard the celestial plane, "Please do not be alarmed. There has been accident. The landing gear has been disabled during our brush with a stray meteorite. Everything is under control. We will begin our descent for an emergency landing. An official escort will guide us to our objective. Thank you."
Little Johnny Walker did not question or doubt his father's ability to fly the plane to safety. So he opened his eyes and ears once more. He resumed his super hero pose on the floor. He was ready for anything.
Imagining that he was truly endowed with super powers was easy for Johnny. The space-age plane was completely constructed with transparent metals, fabrics and windows. Face down as he was, gave him a tremendous view as the huge jet began its steep descent toward the capital city of New Jerusalem.

Garrin completed his mandatory military service several years ago, and he hated every minute of it. Now, he spends his days as a trapper. He knows the northern mountains of Dryden Range better than any other fur trader in the business. More than that, he is one of only two such people to have ever worked in Geberron Pass, the most deadly parts of Dryden Range.
When he is approached by a middle-aged man and his teenage nephew, Garrin knows there is more to the pair than they are telling him. They seek passage to Brywood, a city to the north of Dryden Range and across the Seron River, which marks the northernmost border of Garrin's homeland. Most folk would travel west along the southern coastline and then turn northward, skirting around the mountains. These two, however, are offering a small fortune to go directly through the mountains with Garrin as their guide. The uncle pitches the idea as if he was nothing more than an adventure-hungry lesser-noble with too much gold and time on ...

VANISHED is a chilling tale with a shocking conclusion, about the strange disappearance of a child... A schoolboy hurried along narrow deserted streets clutching a satchel of books under his arm. The murky winter twilight gathered stealthily around him. As he passed by the corner grocery store, he waved to the proprietor, who returned the greeting. He didn't have far to go now; his home was just the third house down from the corner. But he never made it. For somewhere in that short distance of just about one hundred feet, he simply vanished and was never seen again. Fifteen years later, the case still remained unsolved.

Dr. Roxy was a homegrown beauty from the heart of Detroit, Michigan. Her robust body belied the fact that she was a rabid intellectual. She had inherited a super big spiritual heart from her mother's side of the family. Horse sense was all she got from her stupid father before he hit the road and never looked back.
Divorce was an ugly statistic that plagued her family. Even the neighborhood that she grew up in was way above the national average. Only the priests and nuns at the cathedral were not divorced.
"If God does not believe in divorce, why should I?" she said.
Dr. Roxy saw divorce as every kind of cancer trying to kill the body of America. She had to do something. Her mission was to eradicate the symptoms of divorce before they could spread any further into her generation.

The Last Testament to the Verity of the Apocalypse
There are a variety of reasons why people reject established religions, but for those who declare religion to be either bigoted or irrational, what they are actually rejecting is a degenerate re-interpretation of the original Word. The true Word is perfectly rational.

And many today would argue that the portents have already come. In the Qur'an, the resurrection of the dead and the day of judgement are themes reiterated repeatedly as a matter of urgency to warn and inculcate the reader. The day of judgement is referred to by various means over 150 times. The Qur'an is by far the most apocalyptic of the Abrahamic books and the final testament to the verity of the apocalypse.

Journey Towards a Preordained Time is a science fiction novel (or novella), a time travel book, and a religious satire. Renata travels back in time to escape her abusive husband. She gives birth to Jesus. The actions of the first four books of the New Testament happen with entirely different meanings. For example, do you know why Jesus was so interested in children? No, not that. He really had a good and noble reason, but it is not what is said in the Bible. Also, Jesus did not walk on water, he surfed.

What I found was a chance to redeem myself to one I'd wronged many ages ago; the only soul I'd ever met in more than one lifetime. And I embraced that chance. That small redemption meant so ...
